When The Cats Away, The Mice Will Play
Well, well. Jim has been gone for 4 years and lo and behold, there is an 18 month old kid in the playpen.
They never address that part. I guess they ran out of film.

"Thanks for the Nazi Flag!"
Jim Robinson, young GI comes home with Nazi Loot for Dad (Dad gets a SS Helmet and a Nazi Flag!) and girlish stuff for the ladies (his young wife gets a scarf, ("Like it? It's Swell!")) and finds a job just waiting for him at the local United States Steel plant where plenty of well dressed (everyone comes in with a shirt and tie!) are just chipper to come to work!
While the USS can't make Melodrama properly, the one thing they can do, make steel, is quite spectacularly presented here, with the main focus on producing iron rods. From it's screaming hot snakey beginnings to it's cool rod finish, it's really an interesting process. Rather curious combination of melodrama and industrial film makes for an interesting film and worth a look.
